30 Day Minimalist Challenge by Rachel Aust…

I am starting, this weekend, Rachel Aust’s 30 Day Minimalist Challenge. She has a video all about it on her YouTube channel. One of my favorite YouTube channels out there.  It’s a older video but totally relevant if you wish to start a minimalist life.  She also has a document linked in the description of that video; a downloadable PDF for you to use. How about getting started today?

I personally want to change a few things in my life and starting a journey to minimalism is one of them (it’s something I have thought about for a few years now). For 2018 I want to start off right. That’s why I am using this challenge as a base for my starting off point.  I want to become very conscious of my spending habits and lifestyle. I want to own less. I want to deal with less clutter in my everyday life and home. I want a capsule wardrobe. I find I can be a little bit of a hoarder when it comes to certain areas of my life for example: skincare. Why don’t I just trim it all down and spend less money on things I don’t need nor use often? Quality over quantity.

Where can you extend your life towards a minimalist attitude? Pick one thing and start today.

It’s that time of year when I get ready for Autumn/Fall season. Besides decorating my home I like to scent it with yummy cozy candles too.

Candles in my home make me feel so cozy and nice.

I usually purchase my candles from The White Barn candle company at B&BW.

Here are my favorite scents…

  1. Pumpkin Pecan Waffle
  2. Leaves
  3. Flannel
  4. Sweater Weather
  5. Autumn

What are you favorite candles for this time of year?

closet clean out summer edition…

Closet Clean Out Summer Edition 2017

Each season of the year I clean out my closet, rearrange things and put together my favorite pieces in a capsule like wardrobe. This also keeps me from buying too many new things each season. Only a handful of items get added to my capsule wardrobe each season.

This time of year is a time to purge old, worn clothing and donate, donate, donate. I am a firm believer of donating my old cloths. If the item is very good condition or new, I sell them on thredUP.
